The Lieberman camp is cheering,” according to AP, with their man generating some belated Joementum the day before Connecticut’s Democratic primary election. They’re heartened by a Quinnipiac University poll that shows Lieberman cutting into Ned Lamont’s lead, which last week hit double digits. Lamont now has “a slight lead of 51 percent to 45 percent” over Lieberman among likely Democratic voters.

Well, it’s getting tighter, but a six point deficit still doesn’t look good for Lieberman.

(Plus, McJoan at Daily Kos: Lieberman a “principled” politician? Yes — but not the way you think. Call it “the Lieberman Principle: What is good for Joe is good.” And McJoan has the flip-flops to prove it.)

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
